I usually like clean, modern European design but I think the new livery is just bland. I don’t agree that yellow is unprofessional. Blue is overused in the airline industry and blue AND yellow is what sets LH apart. I like the rest of the branding effort, but the livery falls short.
I think the back portion of the fuselage, below the tail (the portion painted blue)should be yellow.
Here’s my rough mock up... color is off.
Lufthansa's new and probably short lived livery makes United Airlines CO, and DL's livery look exciting and fresh.
I don't get it. Exciting? Do you sit on the wing when you travel and marvel at the artistic beauty and creation of the design team?
All it is there for is for you recognize it and unless you can't see the logo on the dark tail then you know what it is.
Remember, "like" is subjective and I get that part but I'm not sure what people want from a livery of a airplane lol.
And that thing with the yellow fuselage... LOL. Seriously? That's not even ugly. That's two different birds glued together.
Same thing was being said when B called the 787 "Dreamliner". Oh boy the internet exploded with likes of "dumbest name and idea ever".
Well guess what. None of the people I know is interested in airplanes. None. They use them to travel. When I ask what they flew with they have no idea UNLESS it was the Dreamliner. That they always know because it is a catchy name and easy to remember.
The livery is not there to make you giddy about it, it is to present a product/brand and when I'm showing some of those non airline geeks that I know both pictures for the past two days it's a unanimous win for the new one. So simple conclusion about a.net is that people get attached personally to brands which clouds their judgment on the real reasons why those birds get painted in the first place. Most people don't give it even a second thought. They have better things to care/worry about than if the new livery is "exciting" or not. they might care about food, seat comfort, lavatory and all kind of things that make or break comfortable travel but being stressed about a COLOR of a airplane you can't even see is only reserved to ultra geeks.
